We Heart Houston

Episode 84 – We Heart Houston

In this very special episode, we heart Houston and learn a little about Texas food and the fact that HEATHER IS MOVING AWAY!! Don’t worry, the show WILL go on and will stay awesome. But, before the leaves the great state of Texas, we have to talk about all the things she is going to miss!

We Heart Houston

We Heart Houston

So, Heather finished up her degree back in May, applied for the kickass job of her dreams and got it!! We are so proud of all of her accomplishments! That kickass job will be taking her to California, so while Liz will miss her fiercely, she is getting an incredible opportunity to make her dreams come true!

We took this opportunity to talk all about our home city and the things we love about it – mainly the FOOD! If you have never been to Houston and have a notion of what it is all about, I guarantee you are wrong! So, take a listen to our last in-studio session for a while (she will be back for Comicpalooza in May!) and hopefully no one gets too teary!

Hurricane Harvey Update

Episode 81½: Hurricane Harvey Update

In this brief episode, Liz and Heather check in to give our Hurricane Harvey Update for our listeners. We are both still alive, kicking; with power and Internet. Many in Houston and the surrounding areas cannot say the same.

Hurricane Harvey Update

Hurricane Harvey Update

So far, the storm has been hammering south east Texas after ripping through Rockport and its surrounding areas. We have had torrential rain, massive flooding, and people stranded. We wanted to keep our listeners up to date on what is happening around us and hope that people are understanding just how devastating this storm has been and will continue to be to this area and to the people who have lost everything, including their lives.

Please consider contributing to one of the trusted charities rounding up funds for the people here, as many will come back to what is left of their homes with absolutely nothing. Check out this awesome Instagram post from the cast of Supernatural. I think we just fell in love with them a little more!


If you are unable to see the original, go check it out on our Instagram account since Liz finally learned how to repost something! Or go check out the original content on Jensen Ackles’ account HERE. Bravo to the cast members for getting this going so quickly!

We got a shock this week and learned that our beloved home of Texas was going to be slammed by the first category 4 hurricane to hit the Lone Star State since the 1960s! Not exactly what we had planned for this weekend!

Listen in as we talk about what all this category business means, other storms we have weathered, and how we are fairing on Saturday, the first day after the storm made rainfall. We plan to have an update episode later in the week to let you know how everything went and assure you (hopefully!) that we are still kicking!

Liz is riding out the storm at her home halfway between Houston and Galveston, while Heather is experiencing the storm in the middle of Houston. Make sure you follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to see the latest posts and how we are doing!

Episode 77 – BOOK CLUB: Storm Front

In this Book Club episode, Liz and Heather examine Storm Front by Jim Butcher. This is the first in the Dresden Files series. Both of us had received multiple recommendations to read this series over the years, so it was time we dug in!

Storm Front

Storm Front (Dresden Files #1)

Harry Dresden is the best at what he does. Well, technically, he’s the only at what he does. So when the Chicago P.D. has a case that transcends mortal creativity or capability, they come to him for answers. For the “everyday” world is actually full of strange and magical things — and most of them don’t play well with humans. That’s where Harry comes in. Takes a wizard to catch a — well, whatever.

There’s just one problem. Business, to put it mildly, stinks. So when the police bring him in to consult on a grisly double murder committed with black magic, Harry’s seeing dollar signs. But where there’s black magic, there’s a black mage behind it. And now that mage knows Harry’s name. And that’s when things start to get… interesting.

Magic. It can get a guy killed.

[Synopsis from jimbutcher.com]

We talk through this Professional Wizard turns murder suspect mystery. All opinions are our own and may vary wildly from that of each other or people who recommended to us to read this series.

We talk about the latest announcements from Doctor Who and Disney’s D23! The 13th Doctor, starting with the 2017 Christmas episode will be played by Jodie Whitaker (Broadchurch) and will be the first woman to play the iconic role. Heather takes on the online trolls who are outraged by this turn of events…of a fictional time-traveling alien.

D23 recently showed some behind-the-scenes footage of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is opening in December 2017. They also released some amazing posters of the film’s main cast of characters that are absolutely breathtaking. You can watch the clip here:

In this book, Felicia talks about her weird (her words!) childhood, schooling, and talent and how they led her to become the awesome nerd we all know and love today. If she looks familiar, you have probably seen her in Supernatural, Eureka, Doctor Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog, and ALL over the internet! She pretty much invented the web series with The Guild!
